As part of our ‘University Days’, a group of children were selected from KS2 to take part in a sewing day. These children were picked based on their creativity in sewing lessons. Mrs Laughland, Mrs Hall and Viv had a fantastic day with some enthusiastic children creating Christmas tree decorations using felt. The children learned how to use various stitching techniques including: blanket stitch, over-sew stitch, running stitch and back stitch, as well as sewing on various decorations including: applique designs, sequins, beads, bells, ribbons, buttons and embroidering their own designs.
It was a hugely successful day and every child completed a decoration ready to take home for Christmas.
